あらすじ・解説

The critically acclaimed author of Alien: The Cold Forge takes listeners to a rogue colony where terror lurks in the tunnels of an abandoned Weyland-Yutani complex.

“Shy” Hunt and the tech team from McAllen Integrations thought they’d have an easy job - set up environmental systems for the brand new Hasanova Data Solutions colony, built on the abandoned ruins of a complex known as “Charybdis”. There are just two problems: The colony belongs to the Iranian state, so diplomacy is strained at best, and the complex is located above a series of hidden caves that contain deadly secrets. When a bizarre ship lands on a nearby island, one of the workers is attacked by a taloned creature, and trust evaporates between the Iranians and Americans. The McAllen Integrations crew is imprisoned, accused as spies, but manages to send out a distress signal - to the Colonial Marines.

Did not Like

I liked it till it got to the part of the talking friendly alien then I couldn't stand it. Aliens were always known to be the most vicious
predator in the universe. untameable. I hope they never make a movie from this book because it will ruin the alien franchise!
A talking friendly alien. I couldn't even finish the book.

Boring and Forgettable

For me, this book was fail across the board. The characters are boring, the story is weak and chronologically broken, and the narration will put you to sleep. The conflict of the book isn’t even primarily from the xenomorphs. It’s more surviving sabotage from the marines. You had an interesting setting, a wide variety of characters with differing goals, and I completely lost interest and had slog my way through the last third of the book. As an Alien franchise fan, it was a chore to get through this book.

The Alien franchise just hit a new high!

Since a far too young little boy stayed up well past his bedtime to watch a movie his parents refused to let him watch, Alien and the franchise it spawned have been a constant part of my life. While not as blown away by Aliens years later as many others of my generation were I did enjoy the movie. The idea of humans having a way to fight the xenomorphic threat was enticing but never felt quite right to me. I preferred the original movie to the sequel. This book by Alex White has made me come around to seeing how the colonial marines fit into the Alien universe and how truly and utterly the presence of the xenomorphic alter the universe for humans. Alex builds complex characters and sets them in a complex universe where right and wrong, good and evil are so very dependent on survival. This is his second book in the Alien franchise I enjoyed that book and look forward to another book by Alex set in this universe.

Just OK. Should be called Cold Forge part 2.

This should have been marked as a sequel. I read cold forge recently, and don't see how the main plot elements could fit properly without it. Even having read the prior book, the way it connected was confusing. The reading was fine. The story was ok.

It's entertaining, but not great

Was an entertaining book with cool moments. Although the author couldn't really decide on a main character. returning characters from the last book are great, but it left me feeling like there was just something missing at the end.

Tantalizing

I saw a review that had a negative review about the narrator. After listening for myself, I think a British South Asian narrator with the talents of Shiromi Arserio was perfect for the accents needed for the reading of this book. Also there were many during female leads in this book which cried for a female voice to narrate.
I was very pleased to have Blu Marsalis back in the xenomorph story adventure. I The back story to the planet was nice, but I would have liked a little more to the parasitic creatures there. This still had a great story line and plenty of twists and turns.

Awful

10 chapters until the first Xenomorph, you endure a terrible soap opera like story with character 's that you can't take interest in or care because they are so bad. The story only gets better when the Marines show up, oh and then they but heads with a girl named shay? Shy? I don't remember because I hated hearing about her ... They clearly tried to copy Ripley but failed on every level. avoid this one.

Waste of a credit

This the worse audiobook, i have ever listened to! And i have listened to over 100 audiobooks. Why?

1 Story has potential but, poorly written, muddled story telling, confusing plot points

2 The narrator's skill falls short, monotone delivery, unsuitable for an action story, more suited to bedtime tales to send you to sleep. With better narrations, you can follow the story or visualize it as the tale is being told. Not so in this case.

3 The director does not help, all characters sound the same, the whole story is confusingly told, so its hard to follow. You have to concentrate 100% just to grasp what s going on.

4 for Alien completists only

5 its a hard slog, but i wasted a credit, so i am going to hate-finish it to the end.

6 With 7 hours to go the story picks up but the writing and telling is poor. The return of blu, the black goo, colonial marine action ,the story had potential but this tale has no bite.

Brilliant Story - Surprises and Twists

Thanks to AlienTheory for informing me about this book.

Great story, interesting characters, and lots of twists and surprise deaths. Not sure how this book had me rooting for the Xeno's at one point.
The Narrator was great, she really got into the characters and personallities I felt.

recommended book to any Alien fan.

Listen to Cold Forge instead

I had high hopes for this book after listening to Alex White's previous novel - The Cold Forge. I understand that there is a process in building the story and creating suspense but it takes 3.5 hours before an Alien makes a brief appearance. For me it never really got going. I found it difficult to follow in places, there are a number of interludes dispersed throughout the book and I found that they didn't really add anything to the plot. I did listen to the whole book, just in case it improved but I was left disappointed. It was a slog and a very boring one at that! If you haven't listened to it already the previous book to this - The Cold Forge - I highly recommend that you do.

Alex White is the best Alien author out there!

The Cold Forge was by far the best Alien novel I've listened to and this follow up is of the same standard. Highly recommended within the the Alien series.

Not essential to listen to Cold Forge first, but I was glad that I had, as this serves as a loose sequel. Alex White's writing is excellent, with well fleshed out characters, especially villains you'll love to hate!

Great performance by Shiromi Arserio too!

Complex story line, difficult to follow

After listening to the amazing Cold Forge (CF), which featured a fantastic narrator, I had very high hopes for Charybdis (C). I was also compelled to listen to C after hearing Alex White's interview on Alien Theory - far and away the very best alien universe (and other) channel I have come across. I absolutely appreciated that White wanted to explore different elements with C, wanted to keep the narrative fresh and exciting and it is... in places. But ultimately from the concept of Charybdis itself, which felt hard to picture in detail to the convoluted plot for which the necessary suspension of disbelief became increasingly untenable; there was just too much going on. As such I have to say it fell several notches below CF.

You need to stick with it

A lot of reviews seem to dislike the narrator and have not even finished the book as a result! Those people have missed out. The attempt at accents early on is a bit cringe sometimes, but executed reasonably well and vastly improves when the Colonial Marines join the fray. Then you are treated to an action packed story that can only rivaled by Aliens in my opinion. Loved it!

Took me a few attempts

I didn't take to this book as quickly as I have with previous entries in the Alien universe. It actually took me a few attempts before it hooked me. I wasn't sure where the author was going with the 'Muslim' commentary, or how some characters leant into their bigotry a little too hard. But, it was worth the read. And, frankly, I was pretty surprised by who survives in the end. Felt like a very unique approach to storytelling.

liked it better than his first book

well crafted characters, thrilling set piece Actionhorror moments, and a messy nuanced war story about the dark side of American armed forces. 10/10 fake Xenomorph weapons of mass destruction.

Thank you, Alex!

I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars. Alex writes another love letter to the alien universe and includes amazing references that only the biggest alien fans would recognise. Alex ties these novels so well into the franchise! There's the Prometheus, the UPP, Siegson and more.
He also keeps you guessing who will survive...

I hope there's another novel coming!

Alex knocked it out of the park again with this venture in to the Alien universe.Perfectly put together and very well read by Shiromi.
